The baby is head down and everything’s going well. I have to get up twice a night to pee and my sacroiliac joint hurts and sometimes my right leg goes kinda numb… And I’m tired and emotional (but not exhausted and not horribly depressed, definitely not where I was emotionally prior to the pregnancy though). My skin is 100% (cutting out all sugar seems to have solved everything), no arthritis, no weird rashes, not many actual “pregnancy symptoms”. Next time I will work out before having a baby. It’s hard on your body and I’m healthy but, man, am I weak. (I couldn’t start working out until my ankle got a bit better from the ankle replacement – as if that’s actually a possibility). So now all I have to do before labour is make sure all the meds I might have to be on are preservative free. I have an appointment with an anesthesiologist in case I need an emergency C-section. There are sulfite preservatives in many epidurals and multi-use vials of lidocaine. So if I need stitches, I need that lidocaine to be single use. Other than that, I’m almost ready! 4.5 more weeks.
Thanks everyone for reading the blog, I really hope it can help people.
